Husband and wife. Dad and mom. Doctor and nurse. Surgeon and teacher. Whatever role we are serving in, we are a team striving to serve with excellence. We are currently serving at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya with our children, Eden and Caleb.

We simply want to obey Jesus, and we sense Him asking us to go. He is asking us to demonstrate, by word and deed, His love and grace to the many children and their families who need surgical care. He is also asking us to teach and mentor young African doctors to do the same.

We serve at Tenwek Hospital, a 300-bed Christian mission hospital that serves a population of about 800,000 people in southwestern Kenya. Tenwek also serves as a surgery referral center for the entire region of more than 8.5 million people. The staff performs more than 5,000 surgeries each year. We pray that the love of Jesus will be visible to the children we minister to as we serve their physical needs and that we will be a source of encouragement to the surgical residents as we help train them.

Mike serves as a pediatric surgeon at Tenwek and works with and teaches national residents in the surgery residency program. Sub-Saharan Africa’s population is roughly 50 percent children. However, there are very few pediatric surgeons in the region, and some countries have no pediatric surgeons at all. Our goals are to expand Tenwek’s services to children and to pass along key surgical knowledge and skills to the surgical residents, enabling them to take excellent care of the kids where they will later serve. Julie homeschools Eden and eventually will do so for Caleb as well. Julie serves in the Tabitha ministry where she helps write and teach Bible studies for women in the surrounding villages.
